We spent some time going over the code - it seems to be the pywapi.py that is the reason for Fahrenheit not working. Yokel is taking a closer look, seems to be something with:

Code: Select all

def get_weather_from_weather_com(location_id, units = 'imperial'):
   """Fetches weather report from Weather.com

[i]
I'm looking into why it's not properly grabbing the unitCtrl.GetStringSelection()[/i]

Yes, this was a bug, I used the wrong keyword, should be 'imperial' for non-metrics. New version 1.6.2 is uploaded

Help Please...
This plug in is hard (for me).
All I want to do is have one light come on at sundown and same light off at sun up... every day... 365... if I am home or not.
Seems easy. lol

I think I have my location right but I just don't understand what or how to get times from web or even fire off the x-10 macro to fire on/off.

Any pointers... or links... or even images showing/telling me how to do this.

btw... I did search. But I didn't read through this whole topic.
:(

Thanks all.

Dear Zian,
You can set it as the following example, just pick a time when you are sure the sun is always up (I used 11:00). Set you location lat & lon and you should get an event at Sunset & Sunrise. You can tweak it further if you like, adding other options as well. In my example the lamp will be synchronized to its correct state every 30 minute as well but this can be set more frequently or disabled as well

Awesome!!!
It works.

I never had all the 1100s (11am) for the daily settings. Works like a charm.

Thanks for the hand holding Walter.
Very much.
